Maureen Dowd Silent on NYT Decision to Shield Serial Sexual Harasser

Back in December, MoDo waxed righteously indignant over Hollywood's propensity to shield and protect powerful men who harass industry women.

"There has been lip service given to fixing the inequality, but no one in power ever raised holy hell about it — not the women studio chiefs, not the male studio executives, not the unions."

snip---------------------------------------

"That’s why monsters were allowed to roam, feeling entitled to human sacrifices, vulnerable young women offered at the altar of art, ambition and box office."

snip---------------------------------------

"There are a lot of well-meaning people with power in Hollywood. But they have looked the other way for far too long on shameful imbalances."

snip-----------------------------------------

"No wonder, given the state of Washington and Hollywood, Dictionary.com chose “complicit” as its word of the year."

Ms Dowd has remained remarkably silent concerning her newspaper's decision to shield one of its own marquee name reporters after reports from multiple women detailing a disgusting pattern of serial sexual harassment.

Yes, Maureen, complicit is indeed the word of the year. It takes courage to "bring down our monsters". You make it abundantly clear that not everyone has it.

3. She's one of the elite at the NYT.

"Turn our back on one of our own? Dearest darlings, it simply isn't done."

4. She had a ridiculous thing for Obama too. Prominent Democrats are always in her crosshairs.

 

Like you said, everyone else gets a pass.

6. Yes, Lapucelle, Mahalo

and you Cha have described her rightly as a coward. Her viperous tongue has given her a free pass to a good life but what has she really done to deserve it.

7. She reminds me of the mean girls in high school.

She stands on the sidelines talking trash and spreading rumors about those who arouse her jealousy. I think she sees the power of the press as a way to get even. I have no use for her.

8. If she can't sabotage a Democratic candidate, then Dowd doesn't have much to say
